Adding Participants to Zoom Meeting via Phone Call


Hello everyone,

I hope you're all doing well. I have a question regarding our regular Zoom events. We often have an event where we use a sound system, cameras, and a laptop to broadcast via Zoom. Participants join both through their computers and by phone.

I have a situation where an elderly participant would like to attend, but they are not comfortable with using a computer or phone to join(might be too complicated for them to type meeting ID and pin, just having an old phone, so no mobile fast joining number). Is there a way to add this person to the Zoom meeting using their phone number? Essentially, can they be called and simply pick up the phone to join the meeting?

I appreciate any insights or suggestions you might have on this matter. Thank you in advance for your help!
